RIEGL Presents BathyCopter at Intergeo 2015

On the first day of Intergeo, RIEGL, Austria, showcased its latest development in UAS-based laser scanning: the RIEGL BathyCopter. This is a small-UAV-based surveying system capable of measuring through the water surface, ideally suited for generating profiles of rivers or water reservoirs. The robust and reliable platform design integrates the topo-bathymetric green laser depth-meter, an IMU/GNSS unit with antenna, a control unit and a digital camera. Additional news from the airborne side: RIEGL announced the introduction of the VQ-880-G Topo-Bathymetric Airborne Laser Scanning System now equipped with an optional infrared channel to supplement the data acquired by the green laser...

Delivery of Japan’s First Long-term Ocean Observation Network

Liquid Robotics, USA, and its Japanese partner, Hydro Systems Development (HSD), have successfully delivered the first fleet of Wave Gliders to the Japan Coast Guard. Liquid Robotics and HSD will assist the Japan Coast Guard in deploying eight Wave Gliders for a multi-year mission providing autonomous observation and situational awareness of ocean currents, wave activity and weather along Japan’s coastlines. This is the first ocean observation network in Japan’s history that will provide comprehensive and economical monitoring of Japan’s ocean conditions. Wave Gliders are long-duration, environmentally friendly ocean-going unmanned autonomous vehicles (UAVs) that collect and communicate real-time ocean data without using... (read more)

Expansion of Long-term Deep-sea Observatory in Arctic

Scientists from the Alfred Wegener Institute, Helmholtz Centre for Polar and Marine Research (AWI) are setting out with the research vessel Polarstern towards Spitsbergen, to use newly developed equipment in the Arctic Ocean. Autonomous instruments on the seabed, in the water column and in the air will complement the long-term measurements of the deep-sea research group. In this way researchers can analyse the climatic changes in the Arctic and their impact on the fauna in the future with higher temporal and spatial resolution. For the first time, the autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) Tramper will be set on its own for... (read more)
